Rome Steward sings Football’s Coming Home through megaphone with English fans

A steward in Italy led English fans in a rendition of Three Lions through his megaphone on Saturday.

After Gareth Southgate’s side triumphed 4-0 over Ukraine to set up a semi-final meeting with Denmark at Wembley, a steward apparently “created his own little party” in Rome.

The flight attendant could be seen singing the classic anthem through his megaphone, dancing with raving English fans in the Italian capital.

England fan Jeff Pedley, 35, told the PA News Agency: “After the incredible 90 minutes in the stadium, the fans continued to party around the stadium.

“We had been singing our hearts out for hours and there was a little lull in the singing.

“That’s when one of the Italian stewards started singing ‘It’s Coming Home’ with his megaphone.

“He actually started singing and within seconds he had created his own little party, as the video shows.

“It was a nice touch. Earlier today, I had seen Italian fans wearing Scottish outfits to liquidate the English.

“However, inside the stadium, the Italian authorities were precise, friendly and fair – really professional!

“It was a great ending to a perfect night of football.”

With many English fans unable to make it to Rome for the match due to Covid restrictions, fans living in Italy and Europe outscored the Three Lions loyalists in the Italian capital.

Joel Phillips, 29, was one of them, originally from Doncaster but now living in Hamburg, Germany.

“I had a moment of emotion as I passed the Colosseum and could hear a rumble,” he told PA.

“As I got closer, I realized it was ‘It’s coming home!’ echoing a crowd of English fans inside (the) Colosseum.

“From that moment on (there was) more and more English people sprouted up everywhere.

“I spoke with English fans from Dubai, Greece, Spain, Germany, France, Belgium, Sweden, Russia, all over the world to watch the match.

“Don’t bring me home” refrains went off for hours after the final whistle and, to be fair to the Ukrainians, they partied with us late into the night.
